Visual RSS aggregator of community news
"When I want to know the last news, I read Saint-Paul" ( Léon Bloy)
The Poietic Aggregator makes it possible to visualise the content of daily news in the form of an RSS flow on various Internet sites (Wikis, blogs, search engines, and others) for example shaped as refreshed coloured matrices every couple of minutes. Colours (or small pictures) are associated with various keywords of the RSS file according to the user’s choice. Inside one of these matrices (that correspond to a site), the “last change” is located in top on the left, the oldest change is in bottom on the right. For knowing the content of the news, one has just to explore the table with the mouse. For opening the page corresponding to one of these squares, one has just to make a right click on the square in question so as to open a new mitre of the navigator. The Poietic Aggregator can have two different uses, 1) just for Internet watch, 2) above all the exchange of information in real time within the communities of blog users, wikis users or users of all other systems of publications. These developments are carried out in a logic of functional prototyping. They lead towards a reflection on the orientations of the project with a concrete testing of its functionalities. They are not necessarily to be considered as fixed implementations.
